Please note that the Tweet will usually be at the last moment, But if they are “Home”, there will more than likely be a practice.

Las Vegas parking tips
If you are a Veteran and get a rewards card a MGM or Caesar properties, your rewards level is high enough for free parking. Tip: Mike L.
Cosmo if your staying there. Tip: Greg J.
Parking is free at the Wynn for the first hour. Then they charge. But if you spend a certain amount of money (I think $25 or $50) then it’s free. I love the Wynn but refuse to pay anyone to park. I just make sure I’m in and out in just under an hour. Tip: Rich S.
Tip from me: Fashion Show Mall and Miracle Mile Shops has free parking.
